FORMER PANTERA BASSIST REX BROWN DISCUSSES HIS FORTHCOMING SOLO ALBUM
Former Pantera, and Down, bassist Rex Brown was a recent guest on Eddie’s Sirius/XM, Trunk Nation. Brown discussed his forthcoming solo album, read highlights from interview below (as per blabbermouth.net).
On how the solo project came to be:
“I went to [the] NAMM [convention in Anaheim, California] last year, and I have a really good friend, this songwriter, Lance Harvill — a great songwriter and just killer guitar player. And we started putting together songs. And it’s just one of those things, I feel free again…And the material on this is as good as anything I’ve ever done.”
Discussing why he decided to record the record in Tennessee:
“Nashville has become this hotbed of super-cool people. You go to L.A. and you ask somebody to play on your record and they go, ‘How much?’ without playing a note. F–k you! Nashville, there’s just this community that welcomed me in. I lived at [producer] Caleb [Sherman]’s place; he’s got a huge spread.”
On whether Kill Devil Hill have any plans in the coming months:
“That’s something we’re gonna figure out here before the holidays. The options are open on that one. But I’ve got to do this [solo project] right now.”
